Esteemed guests are immersed in the year 1813 with a chance to interact with Queen Charlotte, explore set recreations, such as the sought-after Modiste, and take in exquisite performances throughout the enchanting evening. The Queen’s Ball is the most glamorous and fun time you’ll have in Chicago, but not for long. This ball ends June 19 so act fast, my dear!
The Queen’s Ball enjoyed a successful premiere in Los Angeles, DC, and Montreal, and guests of the Chicago experience can expect an all-out production. Dearest Readers, you will hardly recognize the courts of Hyde Park’s XS Tennis and Education Foundation (5336 S. State Street) near the University of Chicago and the Obama Foundation. The venue underwent an unrecognizable transformation of Regency-era splendor, from the Wisteria tunnel, ideal for a promenade and photo-ops, to the electrifying ballroom where you can practice your best 19th-century dance moves under an intricate Wisteria-laden chandelier.Get your tickets for the social event of the season here before the exquisite experience ends on June 19!
When you enter the ball, you’ll find yourself promenading under the magical floral tunnel where a valet will greet you with Lady Whistledown’s scandalous society papers. We suggest you make a stop at the bar first for a spectacular assortment of handcrafted libations lovingly inspired by the sultry series, such as the delicious “Lady Bridgerton,” “Whistledown & Dirty,” and “Bridgerton Fashioned.”
Sparkling tiaras, lace gloves, and delicate fans are sure to catch the Queen’s eye, so pay a visit to Madame Delacroix’s shop, The Modiste, and pick up some Regency-inspired accessories for your look.
Prepare to be completely swept away as you enter the exquisite ballroom for a celebration straight out of the popular series. As you watch passionate moments unfold before your eyes, it may feel like you are living a dream as you take in every moment of this exclusive experience.
